Management Development

Either initially, or after a few years in a professional situation, most people will be promoted to positions of management. For those who wish to earn additional credentials qualifying them to move into those management positions, while staying within their current degree program, the Department of Management and MIS has implemented the Management Development certificate program.

Program Description

The Management Development Certificate requires the successful completion of four courses (12 semester hours) in Management with a grade of at least a "C" (2.0) in each course. One course is required MAN 3025 - Management Fundamentals. The person pursuing the certificate selects the three additional courses with assistance from an academic advisor to round out his or her background in the most beneficial manner. For instance, those who wish more of a human resource orientation may elect to take Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management, and Management of Diversity as the three courses. Those who wish more of a quantitative side might take Management Science, Operations Management, and Policy Analysis and Formulation Analysis. The three courses must be from the Department of Management and MIS and must be junior or senior-level courses.

This certificate is only available to non-degree seeking students through partnership between the College of Business and other organizations. Degree seeking students cannot pursue this certificate.

Management majors or Management minors may not earn this certificate.
